Fans are eagerly waiting for some news on Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarantine. Moreover, Ubisoft might drop some valuable updates on Beyond Good & Evil 2 and Skull and Bones. Release of both the games has been delayed several times, and 2021-22 might be the year when we finally see them.

PC Gamer will host The PC Gaming Show on June 13. As the name suggests, this show will focus on some of the biggest announcements regarding PC games from several publishers.

Just like the PC Gaming Show, the Future Games Show will contain announcements and updates regarding a wide range of console and mobile games. GamesRadar hosts this segment every year and makes sure to include Indie as well as AAA titles.

It is safe to assume that we’ll witness more publishers confirming their shows in E3 2021 in the upcoming weeks. Accordingly, we will have updates on projects such as Battlefield 6 by Electronic Arts and Starfield by Bethesda.

As per reports, Focus Home Interactive will announce three major titles at E3 this year. Furthermore, the inclusion of Bandai Namco in the event is a great news for fans who’ve been waiting for more information on Elden Ring.

Amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, E3 2020, which would have taken place in Los Angeles, was canceled. Naturally, expectations of the gaming community from this year’s event is sky-scraping. In the absence of an actual arena, you can watch the livestreams of all the announcements from YouTube, Twitch, and IGN.
